similar laws on the books and a number of other states are also considering comparable measures. the obama administration supports the challenge to the arizona law. and today's arguments on the heels of another case that could roll back a key portion of the voting rights act of 1965. for more on today's arguments, we turn as always to marcia coyle of the "national law journal." she was in the courtroom this morning, and is back with us tonight. so the outcome, marcia, of this could actually tip the federal-state balance on who gets to govern how we vote. >> that's true, gwen. the question before the justices is where do you draw the line between who has the authority to regulate elections. the election clause of the constitution actually gives authority to both. but where is the line when one crosses or goes too far than the other does? so that's the issue before the court. it wasn't clear today that it's going to be an easy line to find. >> ifill: the reason why this arizona law exists is because arizona officials say there's a problem involving illegal or undocumented immigrants register
better. that report you're talking about highlighted how well the obama campaign did because they had workers in the swing states that practically had been living there since the 2008 campaign. >> and that perhaps is why we saw at cpac a wider diversity of types of faces speaking. 17 latinos, for instance that were on the rolls this time around. jackie, mitt romney only won 27% of the hispanic vote this time around. he lost the african-american vote and also asian americans in that round. now, in order to see a real change here, are republicans going to have to do more than stop using the language for, example, self-deportation which was used a couple times? and embrace really a wide-reaching immigration reform policy here? >> i think that's what you saw in part on this report. that was really the only policy area the report covered was immigration reform. they're also going to start pushing out their stars that are more diverse. i mean, they've already started doing it with people like marco rubio. senator scott from south carolina. they're going to try to get a lot of these leaders

they give obama political advantage. but they also take the heat off themselves. if they said, yes, we're facing an exceed debt -- immediate debt crisis, people would demand they do something. so they're taking responsibility off their own shoulders. the runs are schizophrenic. they claim to be the fiscal conservatives and they're not. at least obama is consistent. he is a radical leftist and he acts and spend like a radical leftist. >> neil: do you think there's something more than just symbolism to these remarks and the fact it was both the speaker and the house budget chief and former vice-presidential candidate for president, saying this is tough but not immediately tough. these are the folks who voted, obviously, for the last deal that prompted taxes taxes to go. so it's a face-saving gesture as much as it is, wherever we're going from there. >> they voted for every deal. they've negotiated every deal. and so for all the talk, the fact of the matter is, obama has been to this -- about $6 trillion during his watch and so have the republicans in the house. maybe not the first two ye

obamacare, which was the central issue the last campaign where you remember president obama was re-elected, the senate went even more democratic, and the house democrats gained seats and won over a million more votes than the republicans. normal people would think that the obamacare issue might be settled. does anybody realistically think it's going away any time soon? the republican fantasy budget reduces taxes dramatically without a hint of how it would be possible. without exploding the deficit or dramatically raising taxes on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republ
pointing out this was adopted in 2004 before obama. this was not a response to president obama in arizona. so i think it is worth putting that aside. i always find it interesting and sort of telling when legislators are activists try to go around enforcing existing law. and the reason for that are political and potentially even cultural. but for example, on this one, the requirement, the existing laws require u.s. citizenship in the case of voting in any federal election. requiring proof of that is the objection, the contention here. i'm not sure that we should be trying to go around existing law and finding out ways to say, you don't have to prove it. we'll take you on your word. if it is hard for someone to prove, let's make it easier. let's fix the problem that way so that both sides are satisfied. say, okay, we don't want to put a single group out of order here and force then to do something that everyone else doesn't. let's make it easier for them to prove. >> that's an interesting perspective on it. we have a solution for a nonproblem. the state in this case is unable to produce one

first. this flies in the face of what the obama administration has been saying. >> i would say consider the messenger. there is no question that they are telling people that your rates will go up and premiums will rise. they know that these changes will create more competition because consumers will be able to log onto an easy website, have a lot more choices on who they want to ensure them. dagen: fried, they are not making it up. they face a lot of restrictions. they also have the reduced ability to set rates based on age. that, obviously, you will have higher premiums as a young healthy individual because you have to bear the cost of that. >> that is not the case. dagen: i am asking brad. >> rates have already gone up. they went up even before obamacare had passed. they have to create huge reserves for the new people who are coming on board. my rates have already gone up. they are telling their brokers, look, not only will your business model change, but rates will increase for your customers yet again. the government has created such restriction on the marketplace. it is no longer f
